Sur­prise, sur­prise…f-se­ries truck sales are up (again)

Diesel World - - News -

Ford re­leased its Jan­uary ve­hi­cle sales fig­ures and, un­like its fleet, SUV and car num­bers—which are all down when com­pared to Jan­uary 2017—truck sales are up by 2.2 per­cent. Fo­moco’s re­port went on to de­tail that av­er­age trans­ac­tion pric­ing for its F-se­ries trucks checked in at $47,800 per ve­hi­cle last month, which was $1,400 higher than it was in Jan­uary, 2017. Even while its other cat­e­gories have taken a slight down­turn, Ford’s truck sales are as strong as they’ve ever been, and Mark Lan­eve, Ford Vice Pres­i­dent, U.S. Mar­ket­ing, Sales and Ser­vice, at­tributes this to a healthy econ­omy. “U.S. eco­nomic fac­tors are very healthy and we’re see­ing the ef­fect in the auto in­dus­try—not just in strong de­mand for pickups, but in de­mand for high-trim ver­sions of ve­hi­cles,” Lan­eve was quoted as say­ing.
